Glass Lantern-type Slide Featuring President Woodrow Wilson:
The item being offered is a small, glass lantern-type slide featuring a picture of Woodrow Wilson, along with an image of the Statue of Liberty. The sentiments on the slide praise Wilson for keeping the US out of the war in Europe. It likely dates from 1916, as the text sugests that the war has been going on for two years.
The dimensions of the glass slide are approximately four inches by three and one quarter inches. The slide was manufactured by the Manhattan Slide and Film Co. and contains a "Union Label" mark. The slide appears to consist of two pieces of glass held together with a black paper binding around the edges. The front piece of glass is cracked from top to bottom. The back piece of glass is not cracked. Despite the crack, the image displays well. the paper binding is intact, but shows some minor chipping in a couple of places. Apart from the crack, the condition of the slide is VG.
